How do I get a logon script to display a web page on login

Please help

I am currently using a .bat file as a logon script in a Windows 2000 domain. I would like the script to include a line which would cause a web page to open when the user has logged in. The page would be a welcome page that might either be something like welcome.htm or welcome.php

Is it possible to do this without the use of VB? If VB is required, how is this done.

Also the web page is on a web server how is written into the script?  www.webserver.com/welcome.htm?

Any help would be greatly appreicated.

Try

start <web page address>

That should open up the default browser with the webpage address.

Web page address might have been better described as path ;)

eg

start www.google.com

or

start c:\website\index.html

Both will work quite happily.

start c:\progra~1\intern~1\IEXPLORE.EXE www.google.com

It would be easy to do this - First, create the page & open in it IE, the drag the link to the dektop, and it will create a shortcut called "google.url" (for google) or something like that.
place this shortcut wherever you want, then in your login script, just type a line "google.url" for example.  IE (or whatever your default browser is) will open and display the page.
